General Information: The U-Bar Trail leads into an area of forests, grasslands and canyons as rich in history as it is in scenery and wildlife. Before the current system of Forest Roads was installed, trails such as this one served as the equivalent of forest highways. They made it possible for Forest Service personnel, ranchers and hunters to move across the many canyons that carve this landscape into a series of rocky escarpments and grassy riparian areas. Portions of the old trail work, including piled rock berms are still visible along steeper sections of the route.
Today, the U Bar offers forest visitors the best means of access into this area of quiet canyons and ridges. The trails are excellent for hiking or horseback riding. The U Bar Trail can provide an enjoyable day hike, if you arrange a car shuttle with a hiking friend, or you may want to take a week off and hike the whole Cabin Loop.
